The locally based Tibetan Yoga Centre is a frequent visitor to Trigonos and will be hosting a course over the weekend of 29 and 30 October.


"Tibetan Yoga Centre (TYC) provides a focused and comprehensive programme of traditional study and practice in the yogi lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, presented in a timely manner from the perspective of psychology and neuroscience of meditation. The curriculum of TYC consists of eight courses progressing from preliminary meditations to advanced practices including dream yoga and yoga of pristine awareness. The focus is on mind training and experiential understanding of the practices supported by gentle body yoga."

Buddhist mind training and neuroscience of compassion

29-30 October 2011 at Trigonos


'Compassion is the essence of a healthy and balanced mind. It is the natural antidote to anxiety and anger. In this course compassion is discussed from a unique perspective integrating traditional Buddhist approach with scientific research on changes in mind and brain associated with compassion. The course includes practical training in contemplations and meditations developing compassion in the context of Tibetan Buddhism. Taught by Khenchen Lama Rinpoche, master teacher of Tibetan Buddhism, and Dr. Dusana Dorjee, neuroscientist and teacher of Tibetan Buddhism.'


More information on the Tibetan Yoga centre courses and contacts can be found at 


Details of all courses coming to Trigonos can be seen here. 



By the new year we will have a 4Kwh photovoltaic array installed on one of our south facing roofs. This is thanks to a loan from Triodos Bank and the introduction of the Feed-In Tariff which makes such an installation financially advantageous as well as ecologically sound. See it next time you visit.  



Office Improvements

Our busy office has been in need of a revamp for quite a while now, so in a rare gap between visitors we've taken the opportunity to sort through ancient files, acquire some new furniture and invest in a new's a great improvement and we're determined to keep it that way!
